The typical method for gopher trapping for Fullerton, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Fullerton dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
This is why our gopher trapping begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher evidence on your Fullerton location. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping in Fullerton. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the tunnel including any young in the burrow. Using two different techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee for gopher trapping in Fullerton, CA.
What reason do we not not use gopher poison?
Serveral poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be merely 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit better but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Fullerton it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison out of their burrows if they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Fullerton lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow a pest control company serving Fullerton tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps for removing gophers in Fullerton, CA?
We have played with many ways for gopher eradication for our customers over the years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate gophers?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem fixed right away in Fullerton. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety and legal in Fullerton for burrowing animals.
